Sustainable Mobility on the Road to Rio+20: Priorities and Actions across Major Groups
25 April 2012 @ 1:15 pm
This event will discuss transport’s role in advancing a green economy within the context of sustainable development and poverty eradication. This will be the first time that mobility issues is discussed across all major groups to the UN Commission on Sustainable Development. Transport is a key sector for sustainable development; improved access to markets, jobs, schools and health facilities are essential to make progress in realizing the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs). Transport was recognized by the UN General Secretary in his January 2012 Five-Year UN Action Agenda as one of five key building blocks for sustainable development. Transport was referenced in half of the country submissions to the Rio+20 Compilation document in late 2011, but gained relatively little attention in the initial draft of the Rio+20 outcome document. This event will help frame discussion of this important issue for the Rio+20 process.
